Here's the difference. I know it. I don't exist in it. I know it. I have moments of it in the middle of masses in calamity. i don't walk around and constant piece. They're not promising us that they're promising. We're gonna know it right and that's exactly right and again it goes back to the action you know on the one. That's responsible for that. And depending on where i am in the process if i'm going through it the first time with four through or if i'm repeating the process on a daily basis with later steps you know it doesn't really matter You know what matters is. I'm repeating that process. You know in the results will come guaranteed.

There's just nothing there so you're talking about teaching people. I was reading that as much as could. Because i knew when i went. I had to really capitalize on those trips and sell ob. You've done amazing job about that. And i just wanted to know if you could just share some tips with us you know. What's what's in key strategies of getting kids and just other anglers out on the water. What are some good strategies and tips number one number one. Make sure you take him when you can get a bit people. I i mean i can't old is powered pork edges especially with the younger ones. That have a short attention. Spans inter is critical. That baba's going down or something pulling on the end of that line and Are that's one in even with a new adults and we have a lot of those coming into the sport now that have never fished before and yes. They have patients where the young people don't however their patients will wane after one or two trips without getting up by. It's the biggest hinderance that i've seen to our sport and your people neck key is getting a bit a bike. Too late that fire they gotta catch something and You don't wanna take him out in this herbal weather conditions yet the weather good into everything your power to make sure that they get back in there and the reason people fish in continue to fish is they had a good experience and a good experience is something pulling on the end that the wire gets really the reason you're out there. That's what motivates people is the miracle of of this. It is amazing to me. My entire life in this business to see would fish can do this change. Somebody's like yeah. Yeah you know a kid sitting under edging blue gills and all of a sudden nowhere. A two pound bass runs out reminders. That back and grabs your bank. You never had. You're catching a six inch blue gills and having a ball in this best is your hook break where your life forever somebody had never muskie fish. You know they heard something about it. They're they're going out with somebody that knows something about all of a sudden next to the boat. This monster opens his mouth bites on. It's an image yet burns into your into your spirit that change. It never goes away. That's what likes to fire in this sport. And here's why it's so important. That that their two n into good weather to do it in your. That's the key is to get get a matching get a matching get them and then if they're really young after three hours to think to run into live whether you get a few fish rockets there fascinated with fish bouncing around in a live That's the key really. Is the key to keep them motivated. Keep them fishing kit. In a short period of time you know and again with the adult young person after after you know you get them out for two trips. Third time Yeah you're going to say you want to go fishing or meet today too bad experiences them. They're gonna go bad back in play video games. Interests will beer so al.

And how to splice taped together at your rewind these stories and how you get into the game and enter the fishing industry and enter the sport different aspects that are available. All you get these different stories from everybody that that has been there enough to make a living business. But i'll go back to what i say just a little bit. Herb just amazes me. What a fish.

He's he's an incredible fly fisherman and he he learned a lot from your fly-fishing video that she goes put out with dollberg and You know and i. I love the small mouth and the walleye in those kinds of species and so it's just one of those things where i i hope it's not lost on you when you hear say you know. Thank you so much for doing all of that because it really did inspire a lot of people across the united states in the world To go out and fish to take other people fishing which i think is really cool one of the things that i always enjoyed and my dad and i always enjoyed watching. Fish was just the joy on your face. You were always you know chuckling and laughing and having a great time and we were just living vicariously through you as the wind. Blew about seventy miles an hour through cheyenne. But i mean it's it's just it. It really did make a big difference. And i do want to. I want to ask about this because this is really important to david. Ni- we we both have little kids and we take them out fishing hunting different activities. And you know you have kids of your own. And and i know. He's very influential and big into the fishing businesses. Well but can you talk a little bit about what that was like raising your kids to be fishermen but also you know kind of raising them during that time that you know you're just so busy and you got all these things on with the with the fishing world and the fame that you had going on. How did you manage all those things and still make it a great experience for your kids. They grew up in the business. they did. There's not all all seven right here except in children. I've got two boys all of the kids. even girls. Three of his kids are girls. They all served in the business wing. Some of your friends. At the time we started lindy dako copier reports sinkers learning advertised snow. Rapper mind cars. Were exposed to the business is a family run. I mean all their life you know and they grew up in many different fields yet. You know it other things. But-but-but number stayed in the business in our in the business today like jim. dna billing and mesa troy. Yeah you know and and my daughter niece who worked as a pr rest. For many many years fishermen still welts me A right right material and press releases and things like that you with the gifted in that area but they grew up in the business thing. Yeah and and that way you were able to spend time together so they understood it. They understand the crab and the things that this life style. If you went to make a living a good comfortable living in deficient indiscreet. I don't hurt my myself and i know many people that you and i do not that then ended the business row ripley. Welcome rarities Actor to it these days. It's a lifestyle business that you want to get into anything cup. Lack of time it is. It isn't in ninth the fact you you know you eat sleep twenty four hours or so you go to bed at night thinking in still today at the. That's been in this my life. There is not one and go. That goes by that. I don't read something about fishing. Watch something about fishing. Talk to somebody about dishing. It happens all the time. Not a day goes by where some aspect of it is in touch in my life. A part of my life in My closest friends are pretty much involved in fishing industry. Right closest friends. Are that sparks your question for me. L. and that's you know i'm kinda way way beginning of this journey. I've got a small family run company but it's in the hunting outdoor space. And you know. My boys are being raised growing up when we work right. We have stuff to do. There's it's a small family run business. it's not you know. Dad goes to work at nine. And we're we're done at five and let's go do x and y but my question is long term for me. My dad took me fishing law. And now i go hunting and now. My boys are in a hunting company being raised. How did you see kind of the transition of with raising these kids. In the company in fending fishing industry they stayed on and continued to fish and still thrive as that was our was that a positive experience for them. Oh yes yeah. Yeah for a number of now. There's some of them that was not. I'll use my to poison example. My oldest son george in here in heat you shared with the. I'll give you my first experience with it. needs he. He was raised in the business. He worked in. It works wade through until they went off to college in it but he was interested in fishing gets his passion in his case. Was things that move fast snowmobiles motorbikes four wheelers dirt bikes. This is what he loved to do. Sounds like we'd get along pretty. Well do troy and the other hand off from the time. He was a little tiny kid. You could see the seat of he would be back in front of our h- house here a day and night catching frogs and just running up and down the bank catching he'd loved it from the time he was four or five years old internet. Never change he absolutely left. And i just think again. God created all slightly different with different interests and is a good thing. You had one boy in the garage tinker on motors and going faster and you had another guy you couldn't keep at the house. He was taking his fishing pole and he was to the water at four and five. Yeah in in in you and your the answer. Paracha half have respect know. I respect that. They have to be their own person in in in seek out for thinks the all that you know that those different interest levels impacted their right as they were growing up in reading some cases to to what they're doing today you know again my son toys into it in a lot of different areas of my oldest son and interestingly he he he liked even as a kid. You're living on the edge. He here you love the excitement of the snowmobile races today. He he'd get so pumped on yet in today. He's he's the paramedic he's a wilderness paramedic in he's fighting fires -fornia loves the game. You're whites. He likes ribbon on the edge to me. I like living on the salary to belated contentment. That's what i really like. And you know. I follow troy on social media and that that guy is always out doing something. And he's. he's an incredible fisherman. I mean it's it's yet it just anything anywhere any way any loves digging around in offbeat places for a coupla. He's got he's got pack whereas in no matter where he goes scurrying rats. He sees the body of water anywhere. Anything they could hold the fish he just drives up insider road. And rodney goes spacious anywhere anywhere crapping around the country with him because spent he's spent some time out west and i know he's fish some areas where i've been and it's just kinda cool to see that and i do want to ask you a question about that. Everybody has some of those favorite moments. What it was like a favorite moment for you fishing with your kids that you can recall the years ago with troy. I'll give you a. I'll give you my my oldest son that never got turned onto it and here's winter. Mistakes that make made with the there was a series the best tournament series. Starting in minnesota zillion years ago it was called the northstar bash turned into and when he was about four years old. I took an pre fishing. Mary and i got a cabin on the lake. And i took him pre fishing for that tournament with me and he had snoopy rag. You had snoopy rag. And they had to wait spinner baits. Then you know it was cool. We're up in the morning out. Who day thinking around. He's dragging this spinner baits through the water. And you know. I'm trying to catch some fish. Internet little said something. It's something from we'll get more moves out to have been great you you you hold in iraq ruled colin. He looks at me. it looks at the rad. He throws looked at me again. I got the message. You burn me out so bad. And so i think there's a balance there were so you know. My dad took me steelhead fishing. And i've i've got quite a few steelhead to my name. And if anybody out there knows steelhead there they can be finicky and tricky fish to catch i. I mean the passion for catching them is kinda gone. I've i've i've been out steelhead fishing and i've seen this in the hunting industry where you know you get some guys. That are pretty. Some prowess in are pretty successful. They take their sixteen seventeen year. Old son out. He shoots a world calibre elk and ten years later. He's he's not in elk cutting he's into fishing or snowmobiling or something else does. Ruggles images of the other side of that story would try. What are the experiences a for a number of years we as a family. A number of where we fished in tournaments in canada Rainy lake in minnesota canadian border. Another one at nor tap happened awake to work and we fish team tournaments up there and over the years that we hit fished at is a group together ranch fish with one of his sons. Jimmy and billy clubs voice fish fish together with danny. We're troy and We look forward to these these tournaments every year of up there and we won a number of them in your jimmy and in billy one. Two of back in those weeks the week caprice fishing leading into that terminated. That was the week muster sunday for fifteen years. Yeah you know it was the highlights of of our trip together with all of us as a family together and each one bus us. Everyone about when i talk to the boys inclusive of troy. Now he says that was some of the most enjoyable experiences we ever had and all of us at weren't time and other did really good way. And i did a couple of seconds and thirds internet but did win one with him in california and in went ahead and opportunity. You get fish with you. Those times that we're in those events burn memories that they talk about still in. Those chips are really important with father and a son. I know with my dad. We had an annual trip that we would take to flaming gorge and that always meant the world to me because we'd spend five or six days out on the gorge just fishing and not worrying about all the other stuff you know. The work stresses of life. And you know i had told you in an email about a trip to voice in just those kind of trips. Just make a huge difference in a young english life and death makes it something that makes them wanna come back later ended it burns into your sweet. You get so excited and then you think about it so often you think you keep revisiting that your mind. Our great great great experience. Yep absolutely and i wanted to touch on something else because we do try to help you know young new people into get into fishing and whatnot. And what are some tips that you give people when they're going to a brand new fishery and they've never been there before. What do you tell him to look for. And what are some tips that you give them. You know it's gotten a lot easier these days because of social media into local bites really. I mean you're you're you're deficient research on lake levels in what the bites been like recently. Water clarity stabilized. Image is endless. In comparison to what we had sixty years ago running through the changes that i've seen are gathering in the business of what the liberal. But you could do so much preliminary work you know. Get getting on your computer Checking out google earth. Going to local site Hunting down to let local reports. That give you an idea of what the bite is like what they're biting that. Yeah you know. Even to death preferences that stuff today is is in most cases. These areas have a very dependable week. Al outlet and that retail outlet Is a great source of information. They don't hide stuff from people they want you to have a good experience and they have fishing reports. That are done weekly. yeah you know. There's things that are posted a soon as their retail operation. So they give you the most up to date information you can possibly get and the is saves you so much time by doing a little bit of homework. So i'll you've got fish a lot of places in your lifetime. What was one of your favorite destinations. One place you wanna go go back in two at this point so far i probably one of the greatest place that i would go go bad bad and it was a family of them. Refer went to australia and We fishburne windy and we floated the rivers my wife stay. She didn't go coin with us into the jungle. And we did it three days when but ahead my two boys and We floated the river. spur morning. And we can't detonate banks and stuff and it was going through the you'd see what originally state you with. All these people would come to the river and you see these salt water again. Getting you know we're we're presented teasing experience. We we fish adequate the very typical coins When with the river for and wendy was that the guy that we're with you at a massive john bolt in. And i think if i remember would the sixty four or more on knew we weren't we took Took off at a tipping point when we went out. I don't know how many miles thirty miles or so it was in between darren new canning two oceans. Boil them your. I've never seen so many fish in my life and we got stuck his thing. We had backup quit. I don't even know we've -able experience that in there then we fish. Gt's the great barrier reef. Yeah you know a couple of days we did that tap water fishing critique keys but that was the the most probably the most memorable trip send in the boys rules enough to to remember that and enjoy and i've never been back again but never been back after us really get to do that. Sounds like a lot of fun to me It was exciting. It was really exciting. Every day was true adventure. Oh man that's one awesome thing about fishing is you know whether you're going out your back porch to your little pond or no for for me it was. We went to alaska couple times in my teenage years. Dad took us up to prince of wales island. And those you can either go on a short little ten minute trip around around the corner and fish a canal right by your house or you can go. Halfway across the globe know go to australia does. The opportunities are endless and every one of them is special in. Its own way you know in every fish. Especially it's it's all the way to work with some incredibly you state. Anglers jimmy jeremy hardcore muskie. They looked. I mean this is their fish of yeah this twelve months a year.

Maybe it was. It was jackie gigantic for bike. That was half water. Fish birds played beat of ball. That would be. That would be a lot of fun. I now i'm like. Wow that sounds like a blast. But i wanted to change gears just a little bit One of the things that have admired you for years is that you're not afraid to talk about your faith and i think that that's very important thing and you know i want to see if he can share just a little bit about your spiritual journey and how god is played a big role in your life after the two most important parts of my life. The next year shared all all the time. It's fishing in my unity. Go hand in hand every day. Day is just part of my life. I integrated what we do with the television shows. You know the the impact that it it a try to kind of quickly for you until the time. I was thirty five years old. You know i was a person. It was not an atheist store. Nick knight that nasdaq. I probably would have favored more upper eighty s. And i don't believe anybody that spends any amount of time in the outdoors anywhere can be an atheist. I think that's an impossibility. But i had no really. I was obsessed. And i guess that's the only word i could use obsessed with fisher twenty four seven. That was all that and you know. It gets all in our businesses. Were building at that point in time and At thirty five started giving turkey in my heart to Right to spirit a guy who was just tugging in my heart. I met people that that Turned her life over to the lord. Lord that were hard party hard-drinking people that i knew a hard partier. You know when they were like a different person you night and day and he started to talk to me about about jesus guy stuff i never heard of before the enemy sound comes with a lot of people you gotta understand nothing really new number and then i started the search knowing there's life got you got your busse heart who's much of his life in in one day turned us away lord has given us percents and i says well i i can't do it myself i need help i need your direction. I'm just saying guidance. Any made a confession of faith. Like they're nice and his life and then for about two years you know i wandered around back. Studied the word guide. The bible began challenged thing to me to get through a through know little things like could this really be real. You know like so many people. It's this bible. Could this stuff really. But this this thing is is there a guide the foundation guiding coke. Jesus was the foundation. Is this thing that he really is is. He says he is to be comfortable recently. Said he did from beginning to end. Yeah you know. And i started looking at this stuff. You know one day it got out of my head arc. It was never less years. All i can say is if you truly search is real. He's there you care some words to be. It's a real experience. You know the the point he's got to get out of your head in it. You have become a part of my everyday life. I'm not ashamed for the dash. That's it openly. That's who lamb. And i can only share the experience that i hear. And how would i life. My family My outlook on business. Now look on life right back by relationship with my wife and the older. I get a clearer easier. It is for me out to be more appreciative of of my lord grayson so al. I've got a question. It's a immuno high positive this way in a as starting my own business in the outdoor industry and then walking in faith in how how has that affected you know business decisions and just in a living in the limelight and and outwardly expressing. Your faith is there. You know ever moments of doubt. I mean 'cause i in today's society and day and age is definitely not something that's widely accepted. Are you saying in here by some subject back. But what would you buy. S- i mean as far as just running a business and then walking in faith. I if you look at the marketing partners that i have every single one of a from boat motor rag reels lures lying a wreck. Chronics are the top right at the top of their field in their individual categories. Everyone of and we've been with them for many many many years. Some of them almost my entire career. And i've said in corporate boardrooms all over the country. Go going all over television space over television network and contract saying that we re mega conglomerate and never have. I had one of say anything about my confession of faith and that show it all. Most of them have said they appreciated it and go forward and one of the reasons for that is an and some of them are not people but they businesspeople and the bottom line. Is i self stuff for. That's what i still stuff on. I do my job or am i would absolutely. That's why they don't you know so it's it's a only one. Major major challenge would network. It was who was with a network and and jerry jones johnson. They want forgot about guy that that was the words that they came back came back and they said that it's interesting the way they did notification we played on this network for a number of years and this particular year correct when just the way it always hits in five weeks into the show and it was a wednesday afternoon when it got where got i got contacted by the president of networking. And he said it's gonna pull the show because you're religious stance on it. We don't believe it's we. We went network anymore. This was on a wednesday. We get i managed. They did this going to pull it if we did we. Did we read it. Every i reiterate that we think energy i get contract signed with a bunch of sponsors and i had to deliver the numbers in so we get at that show and euronet weekend in the entire re edited version. And we continue our attorneys. Said you know you've been with. They want to take the court. You can't beat it you got. You ran for five weeks already. You did this for years. They never get it. They can't do for this thing and and they talked iran in in my wife. Laura his wife's no we'll go to thorough. They don't want you. i don't i don't want to be there. they want. They want us to be pulled what they want. They wanted to be this what we did back to show to them. We make the changes in our last of the contract for the television season. We sent them with bill. They said the bill hearing on pitching to us and we sent them the bill. Bill them back or the editing changes. We have to make sent it back. I never heard from them. That i didn't pay for the network in europe. Charge them back for all of the pain and misery went back bent. So it's no legal. Nobody called us back. Matt a single thing the legal. Nobody their legal. Nobody never heard from him since well. I'm really glad that you guys you know you. Un ron have have always been good about you. Know talking to people about your faith and it's been a centerpiece of the show and one of the parts of the show. The actually look forward to a bunch is the very end when you go through whatever god lays on your heart and i really just want to say. Thank you for doing that because we need to be able to talk about these things and i. It seems like culture is trying to move in a direction where they don't want you to talk about stuff that might offend somebody. But it's like you know these are things that we should all be talking about. You know if that's part of your life that's an integral piece. You should be able to talk about it. And there's one one thought i have on that. Patrick is to speak to have speech to have thought. You risk being offensive. Right to someone. And i mean if we're just gonna walk around muzzled and mass and never have a conversation about anything i mean. I'm into big game hunting that that can be offensive. Catching fish can be offensive. So we have to push back. We have to go. They'll run over here if you don't get you know and i'm a big thing an immediate business all my life. I'm a big believer a freedom of expression freedom of speech. Even if i don't with it so am i even. If i don't agree with it you still have a right to share. I understand and i respect it. And i think that's something that people need to remember. Is that just because somebody says something. You don't like doesn't mean you have to agree with them. You can just choose not to listen to that person anymore. I mean there's there's stuff that's put out all all the time that i don't listen to and i don't want to be associated with because i don't agree with what their stance is and you know there's plenty of stuff that i do love to watch and listen to that. I do agree with people that disagree whether you should catch fish on spawning beds are not right in an argument about that or you can easily selena when you can easily get there. But but again. I i like i said i. I respect our our freedom speeches. An expression is an important thing. I've been in the media business my life all my life and in people have a right this year that i have i a right. The like to tune into a cheddar offer. Do whatever i want with it not read it. I can exercise my own decisions. I'm not gonna go in there in equality sponsors sponsor them. Because you're doing this dead. I never do. And i think that's something that needs to be heard and i'm glad that somebody i'm sure a few people here it on this podcast but what you said is very true. We don't need you know this. Cancel culture of of things that you know. Ripples need to be able to share and people need to be adults about it and mature enough to handle it and choose what they want to listen to what they don't. I mean that's it's it's really part of the backbone of what what our country was supposed to be about and Were anyway i do to change gears. Just a little A guy that's been really influential in my life on fishing is pat o'grady. I met pat. Oh man that's probably been twelve thirteen years ago. And he was getting his company started. And i jumped in and helped him out with. Pk lures and here. He had told stories about you coming out to wyoming and doing some fishing. I remember reading. In the law. ally wisdom books About seminole and a few things. So i just wondered if you could share a little bit about coming out to wyoming. Western space are so different than northern or ride scary. Yo it's a whole different world and you mentioned to you mentioned alluded earlier when they get used to is. Never any wind ever ending win in. I mean if you go if you're going to fish you better better get used to win. Better not bothering you. The rick the vote right the handle nbc and being a safe piece the piece of equipment. They handle wind in it. I don't know if you guys ever go through three straight days in a row word you calm day never. I don't think lever happen. I go to archery shoots. And i have people say well. I'm not shooting in the wind and they start playing. Oh the winds blow. And i said well you come to wyoming. If you don't shoot or hunt in the wind just don't go hunting joke. Defeat w. t where we go to the code is as an example. You look at the weather report the night before they they say the win the window. We from fifteen to twenty five. It means it's going to be forty plus asu. It'd be forty dollars. Plus that's what you're going to get the truth. Well you talk about seminar. That is one of the windiest places. I think in the lower forty eight. I mean the the wind speeds on that reservoir are ridiculous. But i'll tell you the fishing is phenomenal. How many winter they put around it. Yeah they put a lot of wind turbines that sucker for good reasons but those western reservoirs growth big fish. Hey we're trying to keep that a secret. Al off carp fish is amazing and even some very. I'm a small mountain. i love smart fishing. The small mouth world small mouth. Fishing is as popular as it's become the tournament organizations. That have the come up north and since two small fishing and a great lakes and now they're coming everywhere yet yet you know you get to experience it in tournaments Love it the small mouth. Fishery that exists. West of the mississippi river is still some of the most unexplored smart fishing in north america systems. I can't you're innocent. At west of the river or to western states many of those reservoirs got phenomenal phenomenal. Nominal bishop i. I liked to tell the story. I've told a couple of times there's a. there's a river in oregon. I won't give the name but an all out to you. We drift boat floated at one day. And i hooked sixty small mouth in a day and i got tired of jagan forum. So i put on a mouse pattern. I tied and i caught. You know half a dozen small. He's on a mouse pattern. Just throw it right against the bank and start stripping out and they'd at that river this drift boat only so motorboats in that that can be a lot of fun i mean those are their sparkling out there and some of the some of the bigger systems pick the missouri river as an example for four. You've got set at saf. You've gotta wacky a. These are massive bodies of water massive massive systems and their in in in in there. I mean the small muppet. Nobody hears coast that they won't see an angler in your role year for small. Nobody'll be their four. Pack four pack is one of the most remote fisheries. I've ever been to. And i'll tell you what they're there have got to be miles and miles of shoreline that never get fished and i mean there's massive massive in their own up in way up at that even at the dry air dry air too short that is about what forty i think. That's forty miles long. And then you've got that main arms like one hundred and sixty miles long. There's very few accesses. Oh yeah you know you're right. I remember we had a pw heat from the tournament. They're in what we we got the attention that anisimov parsons weighed in. It was kabaya. They rent way when came to brought the smart in with his bad fish. So we could wait and it was like a six three or six or this. Was that smaller. That miniature scale in your macro swarm are up in san francisco. I couldn't pull about about have to lead. Somebody's somebody structures. Just drive in his crazy ton of them in there. That's an incredible says. I said there there miles up. It is the most untouched massive untouched mama. Fishing attack. the guy goes through not to mention some of the. There's one night and forget. That warned that they bleed. I think they believe their next record. Birsh sure commander there. I can't remember to saturday with no gather some wells. Old anti yeah. There's some fantastic fisheries out here. And i know just in wyoming alone. I mean you've got a number of really good reservoirs for walleye and you know a couple for small mouth that are really significant and a whole bunch that are good for trout of various species. And of course he got flaming gorge with those humongous lake trout. And that's and that's an incredible fishery to we touched on earlier smarter and they've they've kinda taken a dive the they they think that the Burbot that made their way there. Somehow somebody moved burbot down there into that drainage from apparently around this area and They just haven't they haven't done as well they they were doing really well in the early two thousands. I used to go down there with my dad and we'd catch some up to four four and a half pounds and now it's pretty hard to find them. They're still there. They're just not in the quantity that they used to be environmentally. Then yep There's something to be said for that. You know when i grew up steelhead fishing. You'd spend a lot of hours and when you finally hook into one of those thirty forty inch fish. I mean they they take you for a ride for a while but you can fish for two three four days before you even catch one hook one hook up you go small fishing and have those fisher so dang aggressive are fun. It's fun so that's one of the beauty of them. Yeah there's a there's a little reservoir here in wyoming that kicks out you around five pound fish. Pretty regularly And i i went there with a buddy of mine one time and we are fishing. Top water thing between josh. And i we we both got probably fish apiece just fishing little poppers on the surface in it was just a lot of fun and then that thing that you talked about al that happens in wyoming happened in the wind blowing really really hard to get off their old of the gun the boat for your life. Get your your jacket on. Got what. I'll tell you that much we got wet but so what's what's next. What's in the future. What's what's you know. What do you plan on. what's coming up. What are we. Should we be watching for and getting a little long into or the age also slowing down. A little bit i mean jimmy wego muskie fishing me for four hours. I ain't gonna go in our barrett fats or two pound rubber. Big thing can happen. You're only as old as you act. Al see you know strongest kid. My body doesn't want my five. You don't want to receive that. There are things that are wearing down a little think. That's wisdom speaking to abandon. No too so. I i have to pick pick and choose a little bit a little bit more but i still loved the game. I mean know as long as i can contribute that this sport in a positive way. I'm gonna do it. i'm not gonna. i'm not going to quit. I'm not gonna retire up. Going to crack back. And i mean by cutting that i wanna do more fun fishing on the shows. Jimmy jeremy that the staff and other people we work with. I'd like to see troy get a little more involved with this stuff. These guys you pick up the ball and run every night for long enough to fund fish a little bit more by that go do some things and places a lot of bodies of water that i'd like to play around a little bit now for two hundred and a lot of people don't understand that you know when you're going fishing for the weekend without a camera crew that that can be quite pleasurable when you're going filming for an episode that can be you know when you gotta redo takes a redo when you just wanna go explore to make it happen you gotta make. It's working people don't they. They sit in their living rooms and watch that and go. Oh well they were just they. Turn the camera on and went and had a fun time. There's a lot of hours behind the scenes when the cameras work was in. And then there's a year no it's addressing a lot of times a lacking half and on hot fight fetched but then when you dress the show after that. That's when you get the underwater cameras stuff out to fit. That fit the scene where the fisher coming in in to get the right drum shots environment. Those those all add to the editing and make it a little more exciting the music tracks that that go with it. you know. Music is so subtle in you know a lot of shows don't use music because you have to pay Their cost us thirty thousand dollars a year to use a music so yeah bachelor of music track because their royalties and alma my companies right in this is our very first go. My dad and i went she putting this last fall. We hired a cameraman and we took him. And i'm learning very quickly of the shortcomings of we didn't get you know. Be roll. Shot here and this extra shot here and you know getting that underwater shot or that overhead shot that you need in. It's you know it's really hard now to recreate and get those extra shots that we need to produce the film that i wanna purdue so make a real exciting piece you back. That'd be rollers goals man just putting the actual the actual easiest park. It is actually catching deficient getting their artist on films that easy. Then you've everything else is putting it together. It's all better than that anything. Sweetening the more things you have to compliment. Show the better. It becomes the up on where we're struggling. We're stretching it as as as as we can stay but it's fun man fun. It is a lifestyle worth living. Believe me i if you if you could do it. And you find a way to get your niche in their buck doing it your sizzle lifestyle business for a lot of people if you if money is your motivation and you want to get rich. Don't come fishing industry and here's a lifestyle some of us.

Thanks a lot. So i think we should keep rolling for a minute. We'll wrap this show up and do you have to tell a story about al. I'm really glad he came on the show. In my first and only time that i've al was i cast in twenty eleven and i was working on my laptop and i was up in the las vegas convention center and i was sitting on the side. Which is a huge building enormous. I'm sitting out and kind of of the way trying to find a quiet place. I get wifi and do some work for pat gradient. Pk lure so. I'm working on it. And i see this guy. Come out the come off the stairs. I see that it's outlander. And i'm like oh man that's that's all inter i wanna go say. Hi and say thank you. And so i get up and start to head that way and i kid you not. It was like a stampede. The ground shook. You know the sky got dark. There's all these people just came from every direction and kind of cut me off and you know it was like okay. you know. These guys are more important than me. These our sponsors. You know these are guys that have a vested interest in talking to al. And so i'm like i'll just wait here for a minute. I'm sure clear out. It didn't clear out. The mass massive people just got bigger and bigger and bigger and then that mass move down to where all the booths were. And i was like well. There goes my chance. Shake his hand and say thanks But w quicker next time patrick. Yes but now. He's got to spend an hour talking with him and he's he's a wonderful guy and he's made an impact on my life that you i can only just tell you guys that it meant a lot to me today to be able to talk to him when i was younger. My mom passed away. When i was fourteen and after my mom passed away one of my things that it was kind of an outlet for me was fishing just to get away clear my head get away from life and my dad. I remember one saturday. He took me down to cabela's in sidney nebraska which is about a hundred miles from cheyenne. So he went to sydney. Bought some fishing gear but we also went and we found that they had a rack of in fishman. Vhs tapes and books and so we picked up those things and brought it home. And i mean. I was in those things. Like you wouldn't believe you know on those rough winners of shan that i keep talking about you know with the wind. Cystic crappie fishing. That was there. And i don't mean the fish you know we we would watch those videos. And we'd get amped up for that next trip to the gorge to catch small mouth or that trip that we had that next year where. We just clobbered the ele- perch walleye at poison. So you know those kind of things really mean a lot to me and just al and just the way is just how he has so much. Fun has so much joy around fishing. It's just so inspiring to me and so having him on was a big deal. You know for me today so it was great but i learned that and positively right. Vate faith and fishing is what he said. But you if if you're not having fun in this industry and he really did hit the nail on the head. Yes it's it's nice to be able to get to a point. You could make a living at it. But if you wanna make money go to silicone valley go go go create the next app or whatever the next thing is you make money and live that lifestyle but you know he touched on it. He's been in the industry for longer than about anybody and he still working i. It's it's crazy. He's seventy six years old and he's still going and just definitely an inspiration to a lotta people and one of the things. I wanted to pass along as if any of you wanna try to win a trip to go fishing with al. You can actually put in for that right now if you go to. England edged dot com.

Milankovitch Cycles

"To understand millan kovic cycles. We have to understand each of the cycles which the earth goes through individually. There are several of them. And it's gonna take a bit of visualization to get the concept via podcast where there are no visual aids. But it shouldn't be too difficult. We'll start by going through the cycles that the earth itself goes through to understand these need to think of the earth as a spinning top when the top spins. it's usually not perfectly upright. The top will be tilted somewhat just like atop. The earth has a tilt to rotation currently the earth tilts twenty three point five degrees. And that is what is responsible for the seasons. However that tilt known as obligatory isn't static it actually wobbles back and forth between twenty two point one degrees and twenty four point five degrees right now. We're in the middle of such a cycle. The time it takes to complete one full cycle of going from twenty two point one degrees to twenty four point five degrees and back again is forty one thousand years the greater the tilt the more sun the polar regions will get in the summer and the more extreme the seasons are the next part of the cycle is axial procession if you can imagine the spinning top again as it. Spinning the axis of the top is rotating. Circle isn't just tilting. In one direction on the earth the direction of our access in the north currently points to the north star players this temporary over the course of twenty five thousand seven hundred and seventy one point five years. The earth's axis will go in a circle that means that not only will the north star. Not be the northstar at some point but twenty five thousand seven hundred and seventy one years from now it will be the northstar again while the earth is going about it cycles on it's wobbling and spinning access there are also things happening to the earth orbit itself for this part instead of a spinning top. I want you to visualize a spinning plate. The edge of the spinning plate would be the orbiting. The earth and at the center of the plate would be the sun the first orbital cycle is the orbital eccentricity cycle the orbit of the earth around. The sun isn't a perfect circle. it's slightly elliptical the shape of that ellipse changes over time. And how much it deviates from a circle is known as eccentricity the eccentricity cycles between point zero zero three four which is almost perfectly circular two point zero five eight which is more slightly elliptical the changes due to the gravitational pull of large planets like jupiter and saturn. This cycle takes about one hundred thousand years. The next cycle is called app sill procession. If you can imagine that played again this time imagine it. As more of an oval plate as the earth is going around its orbit around the edge. The plate itself is rotating that means be closest and farthest point that the earth is from the sun will change over time. This cycle is about one hundred and twelve thousand years. Finally there's a cycle for orbital inclination. That rotating plate isn't flat and actually tilts and the tilt changes over time as well. This cycle is about one hundred thousand years as well and is very close to the same length. As orbital eccentricity cycle each of these cycles involves relatively small changes over long periods of time however they can compound each other or they can mitigate each other all of these cycles have been known for a while somewhere known back as far as antiquity and others were more recently discovered in the nineteenth and twentieth centuries in one thousand nine hundred eighty s serbian astrophysicists named bulletin. Millan kovic put all the pieces together. He realized that these cycles closely followed the patterns of ice ages in particular three of these axial tilt eccentricity and procession all affected the amount of sunlight that would fall on the northern hemisphere. These cycles could either cancel each other out to moderate the strength of seasons or they could compound each other making the seasons even more powerful in particular. What really mattered was the amount of sunlight falling on the northern hemisphere. In the summer why the northern hemisphere that is where most of the land is sixty eight percent of the land on earth is in the northern hemisphere land. Can't store heat as well as water. Which means that ice can form on it. Easier ice reflects sunlight which can cause further cooling during an ice age most. The ice accumulates in the northern hemisphere in the south is can only accumulate to a point before it hits warmer water and the ice will cleave off to form icebergs. Glaciers depend on how much of the ice melts during the summer when the earth is at its maximum tilt more sun is hitting the northern hemisphere in the summers if the orbit of the earth is such that it's at its closest point to the sun. When this happens summers will be very intense and ice will melt when he opposite happens when the tilt is at a minimum and the earth is farther away in the summers ice will not melt as much and glaciers will grow. All of these factors individually are rather small at its closest point to the sun which currently happens on january fourth. Remember back to my episode on why we celebrate new year's day when we do there's only about six percent more solar radiation hitting the earth than when we are at the farthest point likewise the axial tilt of the earth only changes a few degrees however these effects can be big enough when they work in conjunction to cause an ice age. The observed strength of ice ages is usually found to be stronger than the millen kovic cycles would suggest leading some climatologists to think that there might be a positive feedback mechanism at work. Something which causes the planet to cool faster than expected. The timing of ice ages is still being worked on. Kovic predicted that i would be about forty one thousand years apart and that was true up until about one million years ago since then ice ages have come at about one hundred thousand years which corresponds to the eccentricity cycle. Milne kovic cycles aren't just unique to earth like the earth. Mars has all the cycles. I just mentioned except that the timing and the extent of the cycles are different. Researchers estimate that mars has had between six and twenty ice ages over the last eight hundred million years. The martian milankovitch cycle might bring about an ice age every four hundred thousand to two point one million years. Some of you might be wondering if mellon kovic cycles are responsible for the recent climatic changes measured over the last several decades and the answer is no milakovic's cycles take thousands. If not tens of thousands of years to change their effects. Camping noticed over periods short as a decade so the next time you think about the earth as a spinning ball in space realize that the spinning the orbit isn't a static unchanging thing it's always slowly changing and there are cycles within cycles within cycles

"My sobriety date is january. Twenty first two thousand nine. Hello jack jack. Are you an alcoholic. You just like a regular person on here I kind of figured that. It was an assumption. That if i sam but but this is an immediate breach of protocol. Jump on the podcast. Yes my name is jack. I'm an alcoholic alcoholic. And as i said my sobriety date is january. Twenty first two thousand nine. Yes jack nigh Have been going to meetings together. For how how many years you've been in cleveland in cleveland. Sense since twenty ten born raised and moved around and came back. I been going to meetings with us since about two thousand thirteen when i moved to the east side. No right you came over to that. You can over the bridge right right. Anyone's familiar with. Cleveland will know that when i was west of the river i would never never see someone who's east of the river because people don't do that but When i when i moved back to my original stomping grounds the suburbs of cleveland. That's when we started going to meetings together on twenty thirteen. And i want listeners. Who listened to other podcasts episodes to know that jack is the voice that i talk about for many different references. Two of my favorite are that. This program is battle-tested that it is i love when you talked about that before because it is the information that's in here is evidence for me and one of my favorite things at frank. Karner said who died sober was that he doesn't need to believe in anything because he has evidence and all the espn is look at the own evidence in his life. And i also love minna. Jack has said that. I share before that you talk about the mental obssession being the most reasonable sounding voice. In your mind that we're not supposed to if you went to treatment and they told you what to look out for we're not was looking for like a neon sign that says don't drink like we're supposed to look like you're tired. You're so long today. Like wanting to skip the zoom meeting and that sounds pretty reasonable. Sounds very reasonable to me. The the you know the you mentioned what folks might say treatment centers. The thing that i always grimace a little bit at. Although i think it's it's well meaning is the location of a new person meeting and saying well here. Here's my phone number. And you get squirrelly give me a call and certainly folks have offered their number to me under those circumstances and you know what i done it myself but more that i've Kind of reflecting on it more. I realized when i was an active alcoholism in i quote unquote phelps squirrelly. Whatever that means. The last thing i was going to do is call someone that i met in some church basement or some community hall and and i think part of that is of course the awkwardness of calling someone. You don't really now and and everything associated with that but the other part of it is is that my The way that my alcoholic brain worked it was not That you know everything was going fine for the first sixteen hours or so and then the seventeenth our mike brain. Just on a binary switch says No never mind We're gonna get drunk really drunk right now Instead what would typically happen and it could be because it was a good day or a bad day or was just the day Was you know. Well why don't you just go. You know have You know it's we're not gonna get crazy. We're not super chill like super chelsea chen You know maybe we'll have one or two And you know certainly after a few years of active alcoholism..

Yeah so so. I think it's more of like a a nugget of like. In the moment i outgrow it and also the only place that god's available god not available in the future or the past totally right and so i just use this thursday. I love the way they kind of relate to each other at that prayer is basically. I'm seeking him. I'm seeing how asking him to remove it but the instruction is. I need to think of what he would want me to be. Which my truth is i. Don't i don't see god until i'm in pain or afraid i can't really in. It's okay like we're human right and that's what we do we just. We know that we need to keep doing the work no matter what. Thank you so much for your taxes. So i will end the whole the Beautiful thing is that we not only do we not have to solve it. We're not supposed to solve it now. Actually get out of way. It's not our business. But i forget all the time. I think it's my business. Authored reminds me carly. There are two kinds of business. The results are not my business. My only business is the footwork.

"I needed something even more powerful and i had the as of that and if i wasn't that desperate wouldn't have had it because i had fear i'd atanas year it wasn't gonna work. You know a ton of year. So the sierra said you know we never apologized for god instead. We let him demonstrate through us what he can do. So here are the instructions. We asked him to remove our fear and direct our attention to what he would have us be. Not do we ask him to remove our fear director attention to what he would have us. Be those of the instructions. Here's the promise law that it's bang. I do because when i think about it. Because i feel like we're taught for so long if the constantly do something do something do something action and when i think about asking myself that question carly what god wants you to be in for me. Because i've got these children and you know this is our life. God wants to be a good mom. Yeah aren't seem to be calm and kind and a good listener. That i can figure it out way easier than thinking about what god wants me to do. Because i don't always look. I wants me to do. I'll be oh simple. Well and so. Here's the other thing. It's like the Pinball machine right it's going to you. Think of those flippers is gonna flip me back up into a bumper. Because i just read on page one thirty three. I know that god wants me to be happy. Joyous and free. And i do that by following his will so i get myself will back in step eleven. As long as i'm following his. Will i get off of myself will back to follow his will. Here's the promise at once. We commence to outgrowth year and began. Right it's just the beginning so commences beginnings we begin to it. So if you're expecting to completely. They're not telling us that. But it's a beginning so for me i've got to share with your twenty one years sober and there's not been one day my sobriety that i haven't had fear however because of these tools when i have the fear i take the steps so i don't have to live in. I outgrow it by doing the work with happy joycean free. I can't just not be afraid. I have to do that. Work out so let me. Just give you an example. Because i totally agree with that and when i say that that we missed outgrowth ear i'm not talking about like a switch guts licked and it's gone but i use this thursday. I was sitting in an office having all this gum surgery which is low on the expensive. I know i have no dental insurance. I was just really. I've is really experiencing. Zero wasn't in the now because i hadn't even had the full console to know what was going to happen but i was experiencing a lot of fear and i said i texted you a friend said i'm gonna just recite paid sixty eight because this is such a from gonna just show you this is this is such a firm like At i and i said i'm asking d- remove is ear and direct his My attention to what he would have may be. And i just feel my heart soften so when it says. Once i commenced outgrow fear from me what it means at once i get to reset from the fear of i was experiencing.

Then we can give it away and in fact. No we're not gonna be happy joycelyn for you all the time to it. Says you know.

Avoid than the deliberate manufacturer of misery. Which for me is get out of self. Will you know that today. what are you. What's real way that you do that. Because i tell myself like saying this randy per do that what you do when you get well actually so that the next line is instruction in for me. This is how i do it. It says but if trouble comes cheerfully capitalize it as an opportunity to demonstrate his omnipotence. Yes so this is how i do it for me. I think in analogies a lot. And i remember being in second grade and learning long division and learning that. 'cause nath always come down to me and learning way back then the one of the ways to double check if i had it right. Think multiply backwards. So i love that about math. Yeah so for me. it's like okay. So what is god's will right. Well my double. Check my life. If i if i know i have at least not totally rahm is. A ziegler of my heart is soft. If i'm if i'm running on so will my heart. It's not soft. I may be. Irradiated are frustrated or or jammed up in some way so whatever it is. It's not soft like the division. Doesn't i can't flip it around. And it's it's i love that so much. Yeah i love that. So so how i do it. Is i get to remember the trouble if trouble comes if trouble comes basically means if every claimed self will because if i'm running in sync with god's will i'm not gonna think of it as trouble i've been right as a fitting myself. Delays convinced that right or if life happens. I wrote the word life on this. I like for me. It's not even if it's wet right..

4 Ways to Live Each Day With Intention by Shelley Levitt

"For ways to live each day with intention by. Shelley. Levitt with live. Happy Dot. com. I WANNA move through life energy and a sense of discovery achievement, joy and engagement. That is my intention. My hope is that living according to it would be the antidote. The uneasy feeling I often have at the end of the day when I flop into bed filled with self-reproach and wonder where my time went. My. Intent is to be guided by purpose instead of feeling that I'm spending my time haphazardly succumbing to whim or distraction according to expert Mallika Chopra creator of the website intense dot com and psychologist Eliot. Berkman. Head of the social ineffective neuroscience lab at the University of Oregon setting intentions. Confession is a kind of internal northstar lighting, the path to greater fulfillment and life satisfaction. These are the changes I've made in the few weeks since setting my intention. Number One, I meditate almost daily. Is taking me years to commit to a meditation habits but the ten or fifteen minutes I spent doing a guided meditation on the common APP has been transformative. The turning point was a workshop I took with so Kessedjian Norman Fisher, a poet and Zen Buddhist priest. When people say they don't have time to meditate. He said I asked them how do you have time to not meditate with a regular mindfulness practice he went on you'll have fewer accidents you lose things less frequently your focus will improve making decisions will become easier. Remarkably found all these things to be true and when I'm feeling stressed I summoned the image I visualized during my meditation I imagine my breath as a long string of pearls and it helps reconnect with that experience of stillness yet as good as meditation makes me feel I'll skip it unless I keep to a schedule. So make sure to meditate daily at eleven am with four PM has a backup. Number two, I've stopped binging on the news. More than ever I. Feel it's important to stay informed but watching new show afternoons show wasn't bringing greater insight into the issues. I care about is only fueling a sense of outrage and I'm happy to have added The Washington Post, my beloved New, York Times subscription reading either one in bed was only deepening my chronic insomnia. So of made some rules, no new shows or Newspapers after nine. PM. Instead I think about how? I WanNa feel inspired amused transported and lanes and I choose what I want to read watch listen to based on that this has led to fewer hours with CNN and more with globe netflix's comedy about a real life women's wrestling league from the eighties the on being with Krista Tippett podcast and Elena Ferrante as beautiful Neapolitan novels. Number three, I cook more. I'd like to lose five or ten pounds, but resolving to lose weight is usually both joyless an unsuccessful. So instead I think about nourishing myself in ways that will align with my intention to feel more energize. And that helps to your me away from takeout Chinese food and into my kitchen when I cook pots of Faro. Embrace Swiss chard practice poaching the perfect tag and dig into cookbooks like Paulo I of food of Morocco and what to eat for how you feel the new all your data kitchen by divvy alter. And try new dishes like Paulo's egg plans a luke or devious sprouted among solid also experienced that sense of discovery and achievement that I'm looking for. Number four, I do at least one new thing each weekend. I've been having all sorts of new experiences, a meeting interesting people volunteering to do kitchen prep at a food pantry hiking trail taking a class in brewing booja walking the Los Angeles River in a meet up led by long distance, swimming champion Diane, and yet attending a talk by no Levine author of Dharma police at the inaugural Budapest in La. Some outings have turned out to be less than inspired. The less said about the mass meditation held at a conscious life expo the better but I always feel like falling through on my intention to step outside my comfort zone. I'm far from living completely in line with my intentions. Three countless ways I stray from the path but feeling courage rather than defeated I've more clarity about the way in which small things Afar too messy desk and unmade bed can undermine your vision of how you want your life to unfold and I think it'll be able to put some new habits in place soon.

Transcend: The New Science of Self-Actualization, by Scott Barry Kaufman, Ph.D.

"About Maslow's we're we're going to go into your new book coming out called transcendence is that right that's it's called transcend transplants. Verb got it transcend. Is it like an order? You're giving people please transcend. Yes yes that's the idea. It's an action action word for sure. It's a hopefully a inspirational northstar kind of book. They kind of shows what humans could be well any builds on the work of Abraham Maslow's. So tell us a little bit belt who he is we all. We've all heard of him but Philipson is if we didn't know oh good. I'm really glad you said that. Because I've had other people billy well no one's no good no sue Masilela. Why should they care about your book and we thanks so I like your attitude about that? Everyone knows who might as well. Well I think most people who've taken introductory psychology class who have taken an introductory management class have come across maslow's writings. Yeah for sure. I've come across at least if they never even heard him as well have come across that. Connick pyramid now. As Abraham Muscle was a humanistic psychology. The pyramid is the hierarchy of needs. That we're talking about correct maslow's hierarchy of needs and it's usually depicted as a pyramid where you have n- order of needs. That must be met before one can become everything. They're capable of becoming sandwiches labeled soft actualization. Now this is the story this is this is the story that's being told to so many introductory psychology management students and people who see at diagrammed on the Internet however it turns out that massive never drew a pyramid and and there are so many misconceptions about the hierarchy of needs. It's it's incorrect. How it how. It's been taught the past sixty years. Correct a list of needs a hierarchy. But he's never drew them in the form of a pyramid correct. He never conceptualized in that way. His theory was very developmental. He made it very clear that we are constantly this dynamic of moving two steps forward and one step back and then we can also that we can. We can target multiple need simultaneously. We don't have to wait to to start self actualising until everything else has done until we check all the boxes and also as I like to say in. The book of life is not a video game. It's not like we reached one level of the hierarchy like connection. Some voice from above is like congrats. You've unlocked esteem mortal combat or something. It's just not the way the world works and was very clear about that so I really tried to infuse the spirit of what Mazal actually meant as well as the rest of the humanistic psychologists it really is an attempt more globally in this day and age in this world today to to bring back a lot of the ideas of of the humanistic psychologists have been lost but tell us what the hierarchy is. What are the levels the original model in medicine and I revised it revised it but in the original model you had the safety needs or even had below that yet physiological needs okay like food water shelter and safety needs need for certain sense of predictability in your environment and then you have belonging in love and he lumped him together which I teased them apart? And we can talk about that in in my my revised model but he had love and belonging together and then he had a steam needs which is esteemed from others esteem. It's the esteem and others hold us in both. I'd say he. He has two components of that. Both the scene from others as well as our own self esteem. But the problem with that is it's hard disentangle that because we do drawl so much of our own self esteem on this team. It's almost like redundant in like ninety percent of humans and then but then you can get to the self actualized individuals so that's too that's the next level is self actualization is a big. It's a big leap jets. I've always viewed that as quite a jump like okay. I feel really pumped up ego. Wise boom can self actualize? I you know this seems to be a lot of steps along the way there. And in a Lotta ways. That's what I try to. My book is is connect those dots and I took self actualization out as a stage. It's not because it's not we ever reach again. Life is not a game. It's not like you ever reach self actualization and then you win the princess or whatever that was whatever my my video game. I understand just an ordinary language. The words you know physiology safety belonging esteem but self actualization. I'm betting most people hurt either directly or indirectly from maslow's hierarchy of needs. Can you can you tell us a little bit about what he meant by that? I contact Maso talks about in different ways. But there's one one quote he's he used to. If you give me a moment to actually find it I really love this quote. It was the best description of self actualization. I could find okay. Short tie found a unpublished essay that he really wanted to publish it was he was calling critique of self actualization. This was really his attack. He really wanted to publish this before he died. And instead it was left in an unpublished collection. But this is the quote. I think this is this really gets the heart of what he really thought about. Self-isolation we try to make a rose into a good rose rather than seek to change. Roses into Willie's incessant pleasure in the self actualization of a person who may be quite different from yourself even implies an ultimate respect and acknowledgement of the sacred and the uniqueness of each kind of

Navigating the Numbers

"Especially in the early days of a startup. They'll just trying to do cash accounting and that's just literally how much cash it had the beginning of the period. How much do I have the cash at the end of the month? And that's not the same thing as what a piano Show because you're pl paints the picture of how your business did in a particular period of time measurement whether that's quarterly yearly or the cash statement then reconciles that with. What did you actually collect? And then everything that happens on. That cashless statement then ends up on your balance sheet and the reason why it's important to be able to present it in that fashion. It's called generally accepted accounting principles so gap accounting is because that's how everyone understands that. The comparisons are apples to apples when you look across companies so when you are trying to figure out how a business is doing. What are the financials that you look at? Typically the early investing. You don't emphasize financial metrics of that much. Because usually there is an immature market. I tend to focus much more on. Kpi type metrics users daily to monthly users engagement and things along those lines and then the financials tend to emerge over time. Yeah I would say I care most about to very high level topics that the later stage the first is. Can you demonstrate that you can have very persistent growth? And then secondly how profitable will you be when you reach scale? But I spend less time for later. Sage high-growth companies staring at their balance sheet than I do. Kpi's income statements and cash flow in the main thing. I look for the balance. Sheet is the comparison for how much traction they have on the income statement and the cash flow documents relative to the amount that's been invested in the company. So for me. The most important balance sheet metric early is how much capital is. The company deployed to get to where they're going. So how do you guys know when a business is truly profitable? You know I do think you go to the unit economics and really understand them but this is often a lot of art as well as a science. Some of the most frustrating interaction I've had with companies are where they're presenting that their unit economics work but the business isn't working and so I had one where okay we're capitol efficient. The unit economics are working. We acquire users. They're profitable in three months and the company was hemorrhaging cash. It turns out the unit economics actually working the cash flow statement was the arbiter of truth and the analysis that the company had done unit economics is wrong. Yeah I agree. I think lifetime value is one of those traps. People fall into you. Know they're assuming. Oh you know. Our customers are going to stay with us for five years three years so we've got plenty of time to do the pay back but that's the key driver to whether or not you're unique on work. There's nothing that's less consistent in the market than how lifetime value to cost of acquisition of the customer. Ltv GAC is defined. What I always council companies and I like to see is very transparent calculations of what goes in to. Ltv Side Macaque Saad so the LTV decak metric that I like to look at is for the. Ltv The lifetime value side. I always use gross profit not revenue in an I like to use a shorter duration and founders typically like to use so. I like to use three years often. Founders present five years and the point I make on that is that five years is too uncertain a long period of time whereas three years is much more visible use actual retention statistics that you've experienced in the past two project. Those three years the thing that I really try to emphasize founders when they talk about these kinds of metrics is look this is not about necessarily showing investors. This is how you have to run your business. What am I spending on marketing? What am I spending on my rnd? And how much is spending on Gina? And and is that the level of investment that actually making in my company. So you need to be as honest with yourself as possible as to what all these things cost you in what you're really generating in terms of revenue. Because if you can't be honest with yourself you can't run your business. What are some of the other really common mistakes or things that founders do in presenting numbers that you'd want to help them correct? He'd like to see them do differently. You know one. Tell me where business probably struggling is when they come up with northstar metrics KPI's and then when they come back to report on a quarter later they've changed and then they come back a quarter later and they've changed again and what I found a little bit of pattern recognition is when the KPI's change all the time it's largely because they're not working and the company's trying to navigate through it for me you pick your metric report on it and ideally your understanding of the business improves over time as your metric in your models are either validated or invalidated. That leads this interesting question. I think of the psychology. And how you look at your numbers. So how do you manage your own psychology? So that the numbers are a tool. Not this obsession. Where it's like my obsession. Is I wanNA reach my KPI. So I'm going to keep adjusting my KPI. So I do you know the reason. They so defined the three financial statements is. It's kind of truth seeking and trying to fool your investors or for lack of better word or you're bored. I don't want to let them know how bad things are by. Not Telling the truth to your key constituents. You often run the risk of not telling the truth to yourself and so I've had a couple founders. Where sometimes they fall prey to it themselves where they believe their own machination nation and then the board investors can't help them based on the truth. What do the best founders do especially in challenging moments like win the finances and the numbers? Maybe aren't going your way or you know that you do have to tell a difficult truth. They typically knowledge it they take it adds. The truth isn't what I wanted it to be. So now what can I do to change the business to improve the truth? The only thing I would add to that that I've observed from some of the best founders of later stage companies is. They're very careful not to drown themselves in. Kpi's so you can actually inundate yourself KPI's but the very best ones take out of very few handful of metrics that they think are the most important drivers of their business and if they see those divert from where they would like them to be they dig it in from there. So for example Ali from data bricks always focuses on the productivity of sales rep because he believes that indicates health the business in many different ways. So how well is the sales organization actually functioning? What are the market dynamics? What's competition how is the product performing? And you do get a real forest for the trees. I have companies that will present you fifty pages of metrics based on the last quarter and you'd just drown versus. What in here is really important. What are the key? Ones are the one or two that matter the same for every company or does it depend on the nature of the company and the stage that they're at. I think to some degree some of them are the same for instance retention should matter to any business model spent money to acquire your customer base. How long are you hanging onto them find? They are consistent by type of business so workplace. Metrics typically have a lot in common with each other. But they're very very different than ECOMMERCE metrics. The key commerce metrics typically center around the efficiency of customer acquisition and LTV Macaque. A lot of marketplaces. I work with. Don't spend a penny on customer acquisition. So it's got organic distribution or something like that so comparing across models can be challenging comparing within models can be very helpful

Physics of Gaming And The Cloud

"Roablocks. This has something called a physics engine and a physics engine essentially outlines the rules of the physics of the game. If if my character jumps how does gravity interact with that character. Is You know. Is it like the real world. Where it's you know? Nine point nate meters per second squared. Or whatever or is it is it like you and you can double jump for something you know exactly. Excellent is the physics engine. Something that is simple enough that you can keep entirely on a client device. Or is that something where it's like. You have to make a round trip up to make physics decisions so the physics engine itself is definitely something that could be kept on the device but you actually run into the networking in ownership problems. That we were just talking about right. If if you imagine a game like grand theft auto where you can be driving a car are and I can be driving a car and we crash them together right if you assume that there will be some round trip time from my client to the server and from your client to the server from my perspective rendering in real time on my device if you make a last minute adjustment right before our two cars crash rush. I'm GonNa not see that because that last minute adjustment didn't make it to my device by the time my last minute input push got sent up to the server at a new sink of of the real time. Geometry locations came back down from the server to my device. Answer you might see a different different car crash that I would see on my client so really one of the core competencies of a game engine like what we've built it. Roadblocks is how you arbitrate ownership of physics. And frankly how you do some predictive modeling of even things down to user input to try. Try to come up with the best. Guess of how these multi player. Physical interactions are actually going to work in the game space. Do you WanNa make it something. Where all physics is owned by the game server and so you know you have a completely level playing field but a lot of the input and controls than are gonNA feel super laggy because in order to see the result of an input you have to take the input on the device? S- ended up to the to the game server which is obviously some hundreds of miles away from you and in almost the best case scenario and then send that you have that determine what happened from a physics standpoint and send the results back down for rendering locally on the device this or do you want to have the no lag option where you're actually have direct control and rendering of your car or whatever it is locally on your device vice but where the reality in your game client can as a result diverge from the reality on the game server and consequently from the reality on another players local client device because all of its having to be arbitrated in sinked back out of real time from what you're seeing being rendered on your screen in in robotics. We have a really complex set of code. That basically says well if there's no other players near you obviously we can have physics owned locally ugly on your Client N. as other players in other dynamic interactions come closer and closer to you this essentially physics ownership code base kicks in and tries to determine the optimal placement of stuff either in the cloud or on your local client and which version of the world takes precedence. That's crazy I mean. This is the kind of thing I was. Why like talking to people about the gaming the gaming business do you have these guys that crazy problems the a fourteen year trajectory? What's interesting about a fourteen year? Trajectory is that takes you back to pre cloud days. There was a show we did within two it. It fairly recently and into it made this crossing the chasm on Prem to the cloud and this is pretty interesting area of debate or architectural decision making because there are many companies that have investments in Colo's or their own on prime infrastructure. And you know they get to a point where we've got the infrastructure it's useful but there's there's these cool cloud services and maybe it would be cheaper if we didn't own any infrastructure and so they have a set of very interesting decisions about should they get rid of their on MM permit for structure. Should they move to the cloud with roadblocks. I assume it's a little bit simpler because the real traction with the product didn't start until like the post cloud era but I am nonetheless. Curious are there uses of of on Prim infrastructure everything entirely cloud. No We so there's actually two aspects to that one is. You're absolutely right that when they started roadblocks the word cloud hadn't really even been coined yet in in fact if you ask the engineers who are at the company at the time we actually have our game server infrastructure internally is referred to as RC. See Roadblocks Fox compute cloud and they swear up and down that the industry had not used the word cloud before they decided to call it that internally. I don't don't know if I believe them. I wasn't here at the time. But if you believe them they think they coined the name cloud which is hilarious in terms of our current infrastructure. There's actually another aspect of it as well. Which is the operating company at our scale? We are now having to make decisions about not just whether weather or not as effective to move stuff out of our legacy on prem data center in Chicago into the cloud but also at this point our scale justifies building out our own global essentially private cloud infrastructure. So one of the big investments that we've made at the company over the last two years is is literally acquiring acquiring our own global fiber network standing up a a series of. I think we're at sixteen or seventeen edge termination pops around the world and running all of data between our own fully owns data centers in Chicago and Ashburn Virginia over our own private fiber infrastructure infrastructure to those edge termination nodes so from our perspective. Our the way we think about this is if you're a sort of full stack application engineer building service service. You shouldn't actually care what is what infrastructure that service is being hosted on there should be an abstraction layer that says hey I just need to host the service that needs to be able to serve you know X. amount of volume and and and to be able to scale at why why rate up to future volumes and then beneath that abstraction layer there's Microsoft's platform team. That doesn't actually care explicitly. Okay what your service does. They don't care if it's serving the social graph or if it's serving the in purchase functionality or whatever they agency a service that needs hosting with a specific geographic distribution of consumption and specific growth rate with individual certain signals around volume and stuff like that and their job is to place that service on the best possible infrastructure for structure whether that's public cloud infrastructure our own bare metal for cost reasons or our legacy data center. Because it's it's part of one of our like you know sort of legacy model lists that haven't been upgraded to the latest stack yet so from our perspective basically try to have a team whose sole mission in is making optimal decisions around what infrastructure is best to host individual services into abstract that away from the the work that in actual application engineer would need to do to optimize that the resultant user experience does that make sense. Yes so speaking of services. I assume that for many years roablocks had a monolithic code base. Because you know I think uh over the course of fourteen years there has been this increased promotion of the of the breaking up of monolith into domain specific services services or service oriented architecture or micro services architecture or whatever the term does your is so that probably happened. You know that. Kind of breaking up of the monolith or addendums to the monolith that probably start happening before you joined the company three three years ago. Can you just tell me the the rough picture of the architecture today. There's some central monolith and then some other services or is it. Is it like a lot of just a flat services architecture so in an interesting way this kind of goes back to a core roadblocks engineering principle which is sort of set your north star in terms of with the the way you want to solve a certain class of engineering problems and then sort of make sure that any near-term firm engineering technology choice that you make moves your stack towards that long-term Northstar so essentially is another way of saying make make sure you're doing the engineering investment necessary to avoid any sort of unnecessary technical debt. This is a core roadblocks engineering principle. Something we think about. Every day as it relates to architecture vis-a-vis like model. It said micro services we still do have a core four of Monolithic code base that powers. Some percentage of the roadblocks dub dub dub website and associated services the The reason that still exists is that it has proven capable more or less of serving the the fifty to one hundred x traffic that increase that is experienced over the last three to four years. As we've we've gone through this crazy exponential exponential growth curve varies an internal mandate today and has been for for years. Now where if you're doing significant modification to existing existing services. You should simultaneously do the work that's necessary to break them out of the monolith and stand them up. As a containerized micro service independently scalable manage dependencies et Cetera. And so that we have like internal tracking sheets that show the migration of core services out of the monolithic into these independently hosted micro services that now are significant majority of our backend infrastructure after. But there's not a abstract internal mandate that says. Hey stop all product work until the monolith is dead and basically draws back to the idea idea that when that Monolithic code base was created. Yes it was a monolith but it was also created with a ton of attention paid to scale ability. The end of future magnitude of demand concerns in. It's actually even to this day operating relatively wealth from a scale ability standpoint. The only part of it. That's actually a really major negative drain on internal resources that at our current scale of headcount in the engineering department having everybody iterating on the same model at the code base can be kind of painful at the release schedule becomes a little bit harder to manage and stuff like that and so we think. Moving microscopes actually unblocks individual teams allows them to sort of control their own destiny in terms of shipping their own services and not have to wait for the daily monolith release to get their code out into user's hands. Give me some general perspective for where you're at in in terms of assessing technical debt and resolving technical debt versus building out new

How Do You Prepare for Bootcamp?

"Mentioned Queer Karma briefly at the top interview tell me a little bit more about it what it is and why you decided to start it crew coma essentially as a social network for people that WANNA become software engineers through coating oops Northstar is helping people made the most important career decisions and like I said before the first decision we're helping people makers which caught campus but for them so going back to our original story my cofounders cody boo cows Hacker Nab Academy I worked in education and I worked with different people we started this podcast and over a few years we were able to hear a lot of consistent issues that people had and this like minimum barrier level of social skills that people really needed and we were able to essentially help people go from preparing for Buchanan in one to three months to three week process that we started calling the twenty one days case is that you can see on twitter that started gone doc pretty viral and every minute people were tweeting about the company and we're like wow that's pretty interesting and it was an idea at the time so then we're like why don't we accrue some of the best software engineers and designers in the world to like productized this experience and essentially how people get into the schools for three weeks and see if that will be helpful for the schools what we realize is that the people that weren't getting in weren't getting jet because they weren't competent they just weren't prepared and Outta school were spending a lot of time and money trying to prepare them and talking to people that they didn't WanNa talk to because they weren't ready and they wanted to prioritize their time talking to people that we're ready so we kind of created this triple bite slash hired dot com experience that would prequalify and nurture individuals for they got into a coding bootcamp and that way the schools could emit people without interviews that's essentially where we started everything so during Y. combinator taught us to focus on getting a hundred people into the APP that will love us and we'll start off his trying to get one hundred people onto the APP turned into two hundred people downloading the APP every single day and US sending a ton of volume to the schools to the point where we realized that after what combinator we had to build software to help them to handle the volume in the capacity and the reason why this is extremely important is because if you think about college college is only graduate for the thousand people per year and computer science and cutting boot camp so graduating in about thirty to forty thousand people per year for over half an open jobs and so there's hundreds of thousands of jobs available and all this talent that wants these jobs but they don't know how to prepare for the job so we're like why don't we right the people that didn't go to college that want to do count to the right boot camps and also prepare them for it and then essentially have trust with them to not just to get them into the who can't finish the boot camp but also get them into their first job in their next job for the rest of their life because most staffing firms they'll just place you on your first job and then don't forget about you but if people are moving from job to job to job just like we all did the lifetime values way bigger and we'll be able to navigate them for the rest of their life and so once we get it right for software engineers that we could expand to other skill sets and go from there the biggest reason why we started coding bootcamp is because they were the first institution to take income share agreements at scale and for the people that don't know what an income share agreement is is essentially a option to pursue a career with the having to pay anything unless you get a job and the school promises to get to a Daba above a certain salary and if you get that job salary than you agree to pay the teachers the amount that you always know and that you can always afford is a very big difference than than traditional students and they're spreading night just to new cutting boot camps but to sail schools today's schools and even the colleges themselves and so once we provide this for south engineers expand to other skill sets and that create the largest community of people with in demand skills but also the most powerful staffing firm because we're focused on the invisible workforce meaning people that didn't go to college versus the visible workforce and eventually are two will be able to use by both sides so let's go back to the twenty one C K Challenges I think that's really interesting that sounds like that's been a large part of the growth that you've seen today what is that challenge what does that process look like the fourth day introduces them into like what code is and gets them to essentially declare that they want to become software engineer and after they made that declaration we encourage them to do take a quiz they share what their goals are and what their needs are and then we matched them what the right preparation material for the coating hamper cutting boot camps that are relevant for them and they are interacting with people at their level one step above them so every day for explaining to them now what code is but different aspects about education technology companies and the admissions process through school but I think most importantly what we do we put them into a group of five to twenty people that we call squads that essentially become accountability buddies that helped them not distort the pro for program finish it and also stay with them during the bootcamp and even after and if you think about squads is very similar to Muir twenty more we essentially have been with each other F- elastic years and haven't been apart from each other for more than fourteen days and we've essentially been with each other through thick and thin and if you think about the sports it might be through war as a veteran or whatever and so we essentially help people develop friendship to the acquisition of a skill that's difficult so that they have essentially that support system to help them manage the psychology that came from the original blog posts and the reason why we chose twenty one days is because takes twenty one days to make a habit and habits are really important when you're trying to do something hard after developing that good habit we tell them ninety days to make it sticky and the average person gets accepted into three to five boot camps after twenty one days tell me a little bit more about this idea of having a squad because throughout this interview it's really clear that having the right people around you is important why is it important specifically when you're learning to code the reason why it's important is because like life in general gets built through license ships and so when you think about someone that's learning to code on their own so let's say you learn how to Code and you have all the schools in the world and you you finish a boot camp and you get the job search and you never went to college or the biggest issues that you're gonNA face is getting the shot demonstrate that you actually have the skill because if you apply to the website you're going to get flagged naturally because our artificial tangent says like naturally looking for degrees or your GPA and things like that even though companies have dropped their college requirement so what an individual normally has to do if they didn't go to college is like identify other people that are like them that are willing to give them an interview and vouch for them to put their reputation on the line so they could skip the normal quitting process and if you develop those relationships early on you're able to leverage those in the future and you can only get introductions like through other people and so these quads deep are working through they become friends for life and once you get placed into your first company everybody is not always going to get at the same company they'll be different companies they'll be able to vouch for each other and introduce each other to different opportunities throughout their lifetime has these people are making different decisions by the career and so is very organic we encourage every single person to send messages and to read out to each other and ideally when they form squad to not just form by interest but also format based off of location so we're starting to happen is the online and offline worlds are starting to connect where people aren't just meeting out for happy hours they're meeting up with their Atlanta squad at a cost offers shop in coating together and it's like meeting a person and getting to know each other which is like really awesome we recently had a guy with a kid's destiny tabled through his prior job that just got accepted into lambda cool and he moved his entire family from philly twelve Lanta to be close to a squad members so I pretty powerful stuff

Khaled Hussein From Red Door on Trusting the Network

"Is moving up a podcast about secrets to success struggles along the way and life in general today in the pod. Keeler that who seem the CEO and founder of red door. I know Keel it because before his real estate start up now which don't worry we talk all about he was the CO founder of Tilt Hilt which you probably hear me talk about all the time and we also had on the podcasts co-founder of Tilt James Shara a month or so ago so that's how we got connected but that's really just the beginning of it. Here's a cool story about meeting with other motivated and interesting people that you make a connection with after after that really anything can happen Keila. He's one of the nicest and most genuine people I've ever had on the POD. You can tell right away that he cares about others and hand from my experience. He's been really helpful to both Jason. Me On the pay club journey also when Kayla was thinking about starting his own podcast. Who Do you think you chatted with the moral here is that yes it helps to have skills that other people value but more importantly how crucial it is to Gal in the world meet people and build relationships nagging just for the sake of accomplishing a task like getting an internship or a job or investment in your company people see right through that the right right way to build bonds is to do it the old fashioned way the old fashioned human way by taking interest in someone finding a way to contact him her sharing your story then learning about them and then growing that relationship chirp overtime when they need something of course you'll be the one that they call and vice versa but it doesn't happen overnight this podcast. It's very helpful to me for the connection point but all that does is get my foot in the door with someone that I wanna meet but then it's on me to actually create the bond. Sometimes it happens and sometimes it doesn't and that can be for many reasons but then that bond it just isn't there forever either it needs to be taken care Rav. We need to chat every once in a while. I keep them up to date on what's happening in my life and they do the same and there's it takes work but like anything else that takes hard work and possibly really longtime the results can be meaningful. That's it if we're good on the building relationships spiel. Let's get into this awesome awesome conversation with kid well it. Thanks so much for having me into your your we work in San Francisco of course thanks for having me on your podcast excited. We'll even even been looking forward to speaking with your co founder of one of your previous ventures James Shara on the podcast and it was a unique podcast. It was different than the than the normal aw he's he's not a normal person so yeah. He's very unique very special kind of person so I would expect. No less yeah so you in your earlier life. You Co founded this company tilt I talk about time because mixer. It relates a lot to pay club and you guys had a lot of successes and a lot of ups and downs and we can talk about that in relation to to your journey and an I have another really cool startup still in the fintech space which is really interesting. I mean I don't know that that came out of your work with tilt or got to that. We'll get into that too much. Let's start early days. Where'd you grow up. Where'd you go to school. When did you start to become The menu are today yeah all thank you. I am. I actually grew up in Egypt. I grew up in Alexandria Egypt specifically early and as very fortunate. I grew up in a family of entrepreneurs. My father was an entrepreneur. My grandfather was an entrepreneur and the owned multiple different businesses and so I have inherited that if you will and so I grew up there I went to school there and and finished my high school in Alexandria after which I started my first company and is actually in the real estate space as well. It was kind of a property management software to help property managers know which properties are rented which ones who paid who didn't that kind of thing and that was we're talking about over seventeen. Maybe eighteen in years ago now in some dating myself MC time and I finish this business and then I moved to the US I went to Virginia Tech for school. I studied human computer interaction and that kind of shaped the rest of my life really in terms of focusing on user experience awesome products and what the psychology is of these users had they think through problems and the solutions and so forth I finished my masters and then I joined the company called Webmail that was almost before g mail was there. That's how old I am but I joined that almost nine months later the company nine months later the company got acquired by rack space when when rack space at the time was two hundred or so employees and so is fortunate. I joined that team in racks base and I moved from Virginia. Down to Texas coming from Egypt side note coming from Egypt Virginia Genia was really called for me knows first time to see snow as mind blown overcompensated they went to Texas and Texas is actually harder than Egypt. Believe it or not yes that is where I grew up so racks phase. I stayed there for about four and a half a few years and I seen the teens grow from two hundred people ish to about maybe four thousand in four years almost a thousand person a year. The company went public went to up to thirty five billion dollar at some point and it was really great got to learn so much of head amazing mentors and after that journey decided to jump on board to try something else. Try something on my own and and that's when I started tilt and I know we'll talk a little bit more about it but it was an awesome can of Silicon Valley show story and we got to learn a lot from that journey. I got to meet Jay's an in which is I feel very very blessed of Madam and I learned a lot from him as well as an as an entrepreneur as a founder and and then after we sold the company to Airbnb I say that AIRBNB for about a year and a half or so and I left to start my current venture called red door in the Fintech real estate mortgage space yes right now. It's tying all your stuff together. The your your first job yeah I Egypt Yeah so how'd you how'd you get connected with James. We are great story and so you know how how one one of the best advice of ever gotten in my life was in order for you to succeed as an entrepreneur but really it applies for anything you have to build L. Trust and network. You have two people need to trust. You and you need a lot of people dressed. If if you have a lot of people in in your network but there's only two people that trust you is not going to help you that much and if if you have a lot of people in our nobody trusts you it it doesn't matter either and so I really took this to heart and I started kind of throughout my entire career really even starting from high school and college is as I cared so much of a building that network and making sure that I am trustworthy. My reputation really mattered a lot so I I I remember in my first job at Webmail I kind of engineered the situation where I run into their founders and try to learn from them and get them to be my mentor or so I I grabbed lunch with them and presented a few ideas and then they all looked at day deserves. Hey listen. You're smarter than that so clearly this is not a meeting of these ideas from this and I said well okay one day. I WANNA start my own business and I just want to learn from you guys. I think you have a lot of experience and I just want to have them. As my mentors they took it and they ended up big mentors for a very very long time and they actually ended up investing in Tilton their investors in this company as well in red door and through those two mentors they were were they met James and they're they knew about James was building company at the time called crowd tilt and he was looking for a CO founder and and and they wanted to invest but they wouldn't really invest in a company with Solo founder so they said listen. We have this company. We have this guy just to have a chat as E. Tell us what you think so I chat with James. Three hours later. I quit my job at the time yes I met through. You know those mentors that I worked with for last five years. I love it. I love the story of just forging. These authentic relationships not really expecting anything. Just kind of this is a long longterm thing. We'll see what happens. I mean it didn't take that long to to pay off. You use a fortunate. We met with James for the first time. What was it like. What was it about his vision unlike his leadership at what what sold you on it. I think it was really actually great. There is a lot of things you look for in a go founder and I'm one of the fortunate the people where I didn't have to do this whole co-founder dating thing for for a while it was basically James was kind of either first second meeting and there is there is a lot of qualities you wanna find an leader. You WanNa find somebody. That is authentic that understands this pays this. Also you know one of the bests can across Jeff Bezos says is be very kind of stubborn on where you want to be but very flexible in how you get there and so so I really wanted to get that from my co-founder. I wanted to see where what is. What is that thing that he wants to get out of this company. And where is the company today head we get there. That's going to be a journey. We don't know we're going to discover things out and even that Northstar might change a little bit and the future but it it was really important for us to kind of align our way of thinking that we think the same way or not and that was very kind of imminent India and that I chat with him and so but we really kind of saw the world the same way in terms of tilt had an opportunity to to really just is going to change social behavior change how human beings pulled together for any objective whether there is a college party or building building a bridge and and so we really kind of went after that as our mission

You Believe Your Own Lies Very Quickly, How Dogs Understand Human Speech

"Today. You'll learn how to see the earth DHS the last meteor shower of the year. How researchers figured out dogs can understand what you tell them. And how long it takes before you believe your own lies? Spoiler alert hits not very long with satisfy some curiosity. You don't need to tell us go to see cool things in the sky. If you don't believe me, then let me tell you about the meteor shower is the last meteor shower of the year. And if you're listening to this in December, then you might want to Mark your calendar. I know I'm going to because I have not actually watched a single meteor shower this year to be fair. Neither have I. But we live in Chicago where there is a ton of light pollution. And so to see anything in the sky you need to drive a good long distance. Yes. Or shuttled to our listeners that don't live in a major city because you can see stars. Let us come. Visit. You can see the earth anywhere in the northern hemisphere. And that's because they emanate more or less from the north star or Polaris which sits right in line with the North Pole veers are visible for about a week. Once a year around the winter solstice when earth passes through the space to be left behind by comet eight p Tuttle in two thousand eighteen it's peak will be the night of Friday, December twenty first and into the wee hours of Saturday, December twenty second and those we hours are actually the best time to see it this year because the moon won't be up beer since peaks right around December's, full moon, and all that moonlight can interfere with its visibility. You definitely don't want to much light from the moon since you can expect to see five to ten meteors per hour around that time to finally Meteo shower look for the little Dipper. It should be pretty easy to find near the big Dipper. And the northstar is right at the end of its handle. Once you find that constellation look for co cab, the brightest star in the little dippers bowl. If it helps co. Has an orange hue? This is the rough origin points for the media shower, and you can see it with the naked eye. In fact, Benach healers made actually make it worse to see because they'll narrow your field division quite a bit. Probably not worth it. Now, try to keep realistic expectations says the aren't quite as spectacular as save perseus. But on two different occasions. The shower has had bursts of one hundred meteors in an hour, keep your fingers crossed and your I in the sky. And who knows what you'll see new research has looked into whether dogs can really understand what you're telling them. It's obvious that people can communicate with dogs. Sure. But if you tell a dog to go, fetch something, then is it the word their understanding or just the fact that you threw a ball and made a sound science may have the answer. So a recent study in frontiers in neuro science wanted to find out if dogs can understand words, the word understand can mean a lot of things. But in this context, the researchers decided that one fundamental cross species element of understanding was the discrimination of words from non words in. In other words, Doug should be able to differentiate familiar commands from nonsense. Sounds and for this study researchers used FM awry, brain scans, not just actions like fetching a ball. That's because if a dog understands the term, fetch they'll fetch a ball, but that makes us up understanding with obedience. This study on the other hand had dogs spend between two and six months learning. The names of two different toys. I the dog's owners just repeatedly named the toys they'd play fetch or tug of war with their dogs using say a toy called monkey and they'd say monkey multiple times while they were playing to reinforce the objects name in the dog's brain, then the dogs transitioned into actually denting. The objects owners would place monkey and say piggy several feet away from the dog and several feet apart. The owners would give commands like get monkey or where's piggy? And only give out treats if their dogs picked up the correct toy the FM are I scan was the final stage, and while dogs held still in the tubular machines. Their owners said familiar in gibberish words to the dogs. They used to. Mix of known words like monkey and piggy. And mechanically generated non words like strew in various combinations. It turned out that the dogs did reach the base criteria for understanding their brains reacted differently. To familiar words than they did two unknown words, interestingly, the dogs brains reacted differently than human brains, their brain activity spiked when they heard unfamiliar words, whereas human brain activity spikes, when we hear familiar words, we're not sure why dogs react differently to the unfamiliar or how deep their understanding of our words goes, but this study at least suggests that our speech is more than background chatter. Two dogs. They can distinguish one word from another before we get to our last story want to give a special shout out to some of her patrons. Thank you.

We tell our actually the truth in his little as forty five minutes. It's makes me kind of paranoia not gonna lie where am I lying? You might be. No, you're definitely not. I am also paranoid about this. Are you? Yes. Well, Cody, this this banter is really engaging or is it it's definitely not. Or is it for this study out of Brandeis university? Researchers used electro encephalopathy or EEG to monitor the brain activity of younger and older adults while they answered questionnaires now in this study, the older participants was -nificant we more likely than the younger ones to accept the lie. They had told less than an hour earlier as the truth and by older group. I mean, the group was aged sixty to ninety two and the. A younger group was aged eighteen to twenty four according to the researchers the findings suggest that telling a falsehood scrambles older people's memory, so they have a harder time remembering what really happened in effect giving greater credence to the lie. This is a relatively small study with forty two participants on half of the questions on the questionnaire. They were given they were told by the researchers to lie and forty five minutes later, the respondents answered the same questionnaire. But we're told the answer all the questions. Truthfully. The central research question was did the lice stick and the data revealed that lying engaged the brain processes responsible for working memory, this finding suggests ally can embed itself in memory and come to feel Israel as the truth lying creates a new memory for something that didn't happen. So if you catch somebody in ally than remember, the person may actually think the lie happened, if it's not the first time, they've told it, I think the main takeaway from today's episode is that researchers need to study whether dogs can tell whether you're lying while watching a meteor shower, right?

This is a relatively small study with forty two participants on half of the questions on the questionnaire. They were given they were told by the researchers to lie and forty five minutes later, the respondents answered the same questionnaire. But we're told the answer all the questions. Truthfully. The central research question was did the lice stick and the data revealed that lying engaged the brain processes responsible for working memory, this finding suggests ally can embed itself in memory and come to feel Israel as the truth lying creates a new memory for something that didn't happen. So if you catch somebody in ally than remember, the person may actually think the lie happened, if it's not the first time, they've told it, I think the main takeaway from today's episode is that researchers need to study whether dogs can tell whether you're lying while watching a meteor shower, right?

How the executive producers of House of Cards kept the show alive after Kevin Spacey was fired

"Members Netflix cut ties with Kevin Spacey. He was taken off the show and for awhile. It seemed like that could be it for house of cards just as they were getting ready to make their final season. Maybe it wouldn't return at all the thanks to Melissa James Gibson and thank Puglisi you can watch the new sixth and final season of house of cards on Netflix starting today. The two of them are about to take you through how they made that happen. The first one I chatted with them from studio in New York. I had to ask them what went through their minds this time last year when that news about Kevin Spacey, I broke well, actually, I I wasn't. It was a night where I couldn't sleep and it was partially thinking about the show, and I wasn't not sleeping not an unhealthy way. But maybe in a healthy way. I've just we were working in the first two episodes. And so sometimes when I can't sleep. Listen to the BBC and the news broke on the BBC. And I couldn't quite believe. What I was hearing. And then got to the set of soon as I could in the morning, and we were just dealing with. What we had heard overnight or what was breaking. So I mean, that's is what I experienced the news. It self Melissa. You. Similarly, I was in Baltimore and. I think read it early in the morning on my phone before before we were d- began shooting for the day. Yeah. And same thing went to sadden and. We had a lot of conversations the conversations began. I mean, I have to ask I mean, several house of cards employees came forward with allegations of sexual harassment and in one case sexual assault. Frank. Did you see any signs of troubling behavior on the show from where you were sitting now? And I guess I mean, if we had we would have said something, so I think we were both surprised and shocked as everyone else did you were both writers in coke chauvinist house of cards when Kevin Spacey was there did either of you worry in the ensuing weeks that you might have missed something in especially in those later years as a as a show runner. Well, we came onto the show season three as writers, and we're writers in the room for seasons three and four. And so we we weren't onset till he became co show runners season five, and as Frank said, you know, if we if we seen anything, I mean, we took our position of responsibility, really seriously, and we would have reported in immediately. But of course, it's it's absolutely. Upsetting. That anyone on the sudden history of the show was. You know, put in any kind of position like that. And unacceptable. So these allegations come to light production screeches to a halt house of cards and Netflix cut ties with Kevin Spacey. Franken that moment, did you think that this could be it? This could just be the end of the show. Well, I mean, I am MRC and Netflix did did what they felt was right? And I think in a sense, we all understood which is to give the allegations. It's do go through some form of due process. So initially for the first twenty four hours, we didn't know what was going to happen. And the possibility that the show had to end was, of course, a possibility and the other side of it is within a day or two, Melissa. I got back into the offices and without knowing if this was ever going to happen. We start to try to re imagine the season without Francis. Underwood screen so you had the whole season MAC, daddy, storylines and twists and turns on almost everything. And then you have to scrap all of it. And and really start all over again with a really tight deadline, Melissa how long did you have to put this together? Gosh, I guess we were back shooting a couple months later. Frank. About a month. Or so to come up with a new well, not a new a new version of the story of the ending of season six and just on this is Josh I mean, you might be silly to ask. But this is shorter than you normally would have had to work on something like this. That's right. We were planning to do. You know, we knew it was to be the last season in any event, we were planning to do thirteen episodes as usual, and and with the re break of the story, what what, you know, best us what felt like the appropriate number to tell the story properly. We landed on eight. Yeah. Even within that you there was a bit more time per episode to discover what the episodes in the first version. I mean when when it all happened, we were close to about eleven scripts eleven episodes. It's some form had been written. So we had to redo that. But we had to do it in an accelerated matter where were you able to save anything from those original scripts? We were able to save the northstar and continue to follow it. And I mean, you know, at the end of season five
